This novel, copyright 2014 First Edition, might make you a little "antsy, i.e. nervous" as I have felt while reading it. I'm 2/3 of the way through and have left the first part about our nation's failing infrastructures, the second about war predicaments, and now the school systems. Each has inherent problems for US citizens to not only recognize but interpret. It covers this century and the hardships that we are faced with. Calamitous situations to understand in this book have made me feel I should do something. Here I am blogging. Next I'll perhaps write to our senators or representatives or a judge.       Each reader can be a winner by making choices that are based on those of the characters in his book. Find what they do that is wrong and right and which repairs you can "fix" any failing structures with. His accounts are factual and many possible and essential to deflect before the same happens in your area. Here is... read more

http://havechant.blogspot.com/     Because I can't post my original postcards on this website, I started a blog today and have posted the website here for you.

Did you read my post called "Consuela Thea Has A Middlendorf Range"?  If you liked it, you might like this one too. I named it "A Pretty One Ran to the Tent"  and use it to remember the interest formula, A = P(1 + r/n)^nt.     A (A) = P (pretty) (1 (one) + r/n (ran)^(to the) nt (last two letters of tent)    It is a tool for recalling under pressure the Interest Formula, A=P(1+r/n)^nt.   Let's look at the ^ symbol and the nt that follows. The ^ symbol represents "to the power of" or an exponent.  The rest of the formula is as follows:   A=  the amount of money after interest is added to the principal P=  the principal r=   the interest rate in decimal form n=  the number of compounding periods that exist in one year; quarterly is four t=   the number of years in which the principal will be compounded (always in years; 6 months is... read more

This month alone to make lessons interesting at least and fun I did the following: 1) I listened to what two of my students like in addition to their academic pursuits such as playing piano and surprised each with a new music songs book 2) I create mnemonic aids such as Yea = Mix and Bake that when repeated becomes yea, mix cookie mix and bake it. The Y=Mx + B is the slope formula. 3) I meet students at libraries and offer book hunts, a computer session, or the thoughts of future with announcements on the lobby's board of forthcoming movies and other events as relief to the grind. 4) I bring play money to young childrens' lessons. 5) I present my students with holiday greeting cards and in December of 2014 it occurred to me that it might be fun for parents and young children to fill a Letters to Santa mailbox that I will bring to lessons and make contact to parents and/or students around October.  All of these are pleasantries and fun for me too.d

Kindergarten to graduate school curriculum has benefited me consistently by empowering me with self-reliance. I have an appreciation of the tools offered to us by educators. I learned to depend on structure and self-initiative as some of my tools, and education taught me to call these and any developing qualities just such, tools! Educators connect tools to presence to responsibility. Dentists, carpenters, and welders are among the millions of professionals who make ample amounts of money each year. Tools are what they have so I’m very enthusiastic about having mine.      The passions around us, fires kindled by print, ensured my pursuit of scholarly material, a long, fur coat in this world of ours that gets called “a cold world”. When my circumstances have required me to extemporaneously speak, close the money-obligation gap by gaining job experience, or travel alone into a foreign nation, I haven’t demurred but instead run to these situations... read more

When you have to recall your order of operations, you use Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally. I have created two memorable sayings that will help when you have to suddenly recall the formulas for the circumference and/or the area of circles. The saying for area is Auntie's Pies R at 2o'clock or A=piR^2 and circumference is Cooks have Two Pies Ready or C=2piR.   A=PiR^2  and C=2PiR   Keep practicing. Be well.

Discipline yourself to study a small amount of math everyday of every year. When one asks oneself how do variables, equations, and principles of math help one to get the money that large corporations pay to those that don't seem to use math?  Employees may be required to face exams with math problems when they respond to a job ad.  Many candidates might be passed because they have scored low in the math area of the entry-level exam. And one might say obvious dedication to math may be the reason for high math scores. Evident dedication to math might be understood as dedication to logic and perseverance, two desirable qualities in a worker. One never knows when a "entry level" test will appear on a job application. Solving problems at a more difficult level could get one an increase in pay. Tests for post-high school groups may include reasoning and word problems. If it is house painting one wants to be paid to do, one may take orders from the house owner. But one... read more

Hello,      If you know that the middle number of a range of numbers that are consecutive is always the average, then you won't need this mnemonic boost. But if you have a gross of  problems and an exam, you will want to have several English phrases to help you find needed steps for applications.       This morning in a lesson, I put together "Consuela" so you recall Consecutive; "Thea" for the average; "Range" for range; and "Middlendorf" for middle.  These words make a good chant. Once you memorize the phrase and connect it to create a range of consecutive numbers (the example in this blog has odd numbers) and the average every time is the middle number, you have something concrete to "grip".  Chant "Consuela Thea Has A Middlendorf Range" and put instantly as the average of {3, 5, 7, 9, and 11} what? Maybe you will connect your chant at the time you are presented... read more

We Have Recognized Our Salvation                                              By Carol E. December 31, 2013 Doctor, I got a miracle from you but I knew that it is Jesus, He is close to you.

I keep my communication outside of in-person lessons directed toward the benefit of the student/parent. When I respond to an inquiry for tutoring, I normally mention that I will give a 15% discount at the start of the 25th hour in addition to the 15% discount Wyzant offers for buyers who purchase hours by the bulk. I communicate to students/parents when holiday times come that they may have an extra small discount to buy themselves a turkey. I offer them a small discount during Mardi Gras since parades traffic and unusual environmental activity makes travel less convenient. And somewhere in the timeframe of our lessons, I send an email to offer to augment in-person lessons with students who purchase just a few lessons with some pointers in any part of their topic they need. Each of these announcements receive a written message. I use the phone only by request and usually we coordinate our plans via emails. For accounting and AP... read more

As a tutor, I enjoy the use of coloring pencils because they effectively help students to find their way through steps I give them in their lessons. I also like them because they help me with my hobby of drawing. I just posted in my photos section a part of a picture I just finished. For I used ceramic candleholders, a blue bird and a yellow bird, to draw the birds and then used my sky blue, yellow green, light brown and brown plus gray to give them a natural habitat. In addition to the drawing I posted a poster inviting you to get together with me to make posters. The process is interesting!

QUESTION: "How should students prepare to go back to school if they only have a few minutes to spare each day? Say goodbye daily to your former dolors, compunction and indolence so that your aura reveals that you put your best self forward while outside of your home and in organizations. You will more likely meet your goals and survive any situations that aren't win-win. Join an organization other than just school to be safe, interesting, and less impressionable.

The word problem I liked from either one of my trusty text books or a website and that I bring each time to lessons describes a \$400.00 flute in a music store that has a 10% discount on it. Then there is a back-to-school sale at which time 15% is taken off of the discounted price of the flute. The girl buys the flute and for which price? A. 270.00 B. 300.00 C. 306.00 D. 375.00 E. 389.00 An algebraic equation can be used to solve this problem and so can an abstract almost mental method. Let's start with the latter, the abstract way. 10% of 400.00 is 40.00. Novices might say that deducting another 10% (40.00 dollars more) plus 5% (20.00) would mean that the 400.00 flute cost the buyer 300.00. This would make B the choice of the novice. Yet! What the novice will have missed is that the 10% and 5% (15%) is calculated from \$400.00 minus the initial \$40.00 making \$360.00 the price of the flute at the time of the back-to-school sale. 10% of \$360.00 is... read more

It was quite easy to deduce. Dressing foods daily with butter will send a body's cholesterol out of safe bounds. A simple sweet potato without any cholesterol should be kept pleasurable to the mind with an accompaniment of something other than butter. You saw my Elf's Shoe. If you will consider my original offering of refried beans (zero cholesterol) and a packet of Stevia mixed with mashed sweet potato, you might like it enough to substitute formerly unearthed substitutes for LDL products. Bon apetit from New Orleans. It is filled with residents who know what elevated cholesterol levels plus vitamin deficiencies can do in subtropical climates. It is a city with endless temptations in culinary circles. Knowing how to be in those circles quite uninhibitedly means keeping your mind open to formerly unheard of combinations.

Once again in 2013 I'm seeking long term projects, annual pleasurable events, and investment payoffs in New Orleans. This city is a hub of business, worldly architecture, and education. When I acknowledge that I'm not affluent enough to take faraway trips, I have only to alight from the magical trolleys to traipse through the neighborhoods steeped in worldly roots to experience euphoria much the same way world travelers report it is. Since schools teach me geography, architecture, botany, etc., and indirectly how to survive amidst the social reports of places that I might not have the ability to accomplish travel to, I have loads of respect for educators and administrators. I just moved from Waveland, MS (a temporary town to all of us since hurricanes inevitably obliterate it) after 2.5 years. I had lived here in another period of time and space. I was the daughter of camp administrators, and for ten summers while a camper in a series of cabins in the woods on the road built alongside... read more

Students can benefit by realizing that when they are typing in Word if they press on the right mouse button, a shortcut menu drops down inside of the document. It is serving as a food server might and is there to ask you, "What do you need?". You can look at the short cut menu and ask it to paste, cut, copy, number, etc. for you. Select with your left mouse button what it is you wish to order. Now the left side is acting as a customer would. You can find your way by remembering that you raise your right hand in class when you want to get something.
